So fellow travelers, baking cookies the morning of Christmas Eve day has become a tradition at my home. I started this originally to keep little hands and minds busy downstairs while elves wrapped presents upstairs. We deliver small plates of cookies to our neighbors later in the day. Last week, Favorite Oldest Daughter asked for one of the recipes, thumbprint jelly cookies, which are a family favorite and standard fare for Christmas Morning Breakfast.
Today when I was baking those cookies the thought that she was carrying that family favorite forward made me smile. Cookies across the miles keeping hearts connected, the thought gave birth to this haiku:
Christmas Cookies Across the Miles
On the other coast
One I love is baking too
Cookies bridge the miles
Wishing you and those you love a sweet and joyful holiday.
Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready
